Scope Biology remains an inspiration for advanced materials design for a wide range of applications. The study of the interaction of engineered materials and biological systems is a rapidly growing, interdisciplinary frontier in materials science and engineering with considerable possibilities. Biological Materials Science involves the application of materials science and engineering principles to the study of biological materials, including the design, synthesis and fabrication of materials systems with lessons from biology. The Symposium on Biological Materials Science will focus on advances in biological materials towards the development of biomaterials and biomimetic materials.
Biological materials comprise of the inorganic and organic constituents of biological systems, whereas biomaterials are synthetic materials developed to replace, restore or augment the functionality of biological materials. Hierarchical structure coupled with built-in redundancy is ubiquitous in biological materials which is responsible for their unique properties, including the ability to heal. Biological materials are formed under ambient conditions by living and adaptive biological systems for multifunctional performance. Characterizing and modeling responses of these materials are highly challenging due to their complex hierarchical structures, anisotropy and inherent inhomogeneity. Biomimetic materials (or bio-inspired materials) are tailored to replicate the desired structure and properties of biological materials based upon the study of their structure-property relationships. Biomimetic materials often require creative and novel methods of synthesis/processing and microstructural design in order to achieve the desired functionality.

The symposium will encompass the following themes:
o Biological materials (soft and hard tissues, cells, etc.)
o Biomaterials (implants, tissue engineered structures and devices)
o Modeling and experimental evaluation of mechanical properties of biological and biomaterials.
o Biomimetic and bio-inspired materials
o Bio-enabled materials and systems
o Bio-related applications
